Samsung might unveil as many as 8 Android smartphones in Q1 2013
Samsung is the company dominating Android for a reason - it is the most prolific phone maker, well represented in everything from the ultra low end to top of the line devices. And if we believe this latest rumor coming from Sam Mobile, the situation is going to remain this way.

Allegedly Samsung is planning to refresh its mid-range lineup as soon as MWC at the end of February, and that might meen a massive rollout of as many as 8 new devices.

Here are the model numbers that have surfaced and the possible devices that might get announced in February. Don’t take this as a fact - it’s merely a rumor and we’d actually be really surprised if Samsung unveiled all eight at the same time. But some of them? Quite possible.

  • GT-B9150 – Name TBD
  • GT-I8262 – Galaxy Core
  • GT-I9150 / GT-I9152 – Galaxy Fonblet 5.8
  • GT-I9205 – Galaxy Fonblet 6.3
  • GT-S5282 – Galaxy Star
  • GT-S5310 / GT-S5312 – Galaxy Pocket 2
  • GT-S6310 / GT-S6312 – Galaxy Young
  • GT-S6810 / GT-S6810P – Galaxy Frame

This first device, the B9150, codenamed HomeSync, might turn out to be the surprise of MWC. The rest are mid-rangers and phablets, and there is even an update to Samsung's Star feature phone, a niche we thought was already getting depleted with Android reaching the low end.

The Samsung Galaxy S IV is of course missing as it’s got all the attention needed for a separate press event, expected somewhere in April to May.

Yes. 8 might be seen as too many, but at least they're trying to accommodate different users at different price points rather than trying to get everyone to adjust to a phone that may not be ideal for their needs.

I think its time to reply them back that we need a phone, not tablet. 6.3" is insane. Note and Note 2 were success doesn't mean that people need a more over sized phone. Its over samsung. We took a long time to travel to make the phone more compact and you're going back ? Why ?

B9150 is equipped with an Exynos dual 5250 and comes with 4.1.2, may very well be the Qwerty model. I've written an essay in the the recently announced Samsung article to how many models Samsung should realistically churn out.
